ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It looks as though April only has a week left
and then we shall welcome May.  Although it
is still a bit on the coolish side.  We had about
2 days last week with 70 F degrees,  but now
it’s back to the upper 40’s for the rest of the
week including yesterday and today and yes
the nights are in the lower to upper 20’s for
the rest of the week.  By next weekend or so
the nights should be more in the lower 30’s and
the days in the lower to mid 50’s.  Spring is
still having a hard time grabbing hold hehehe.
The wind is blowing vigorously today.  The
tarp that we have over our picnic table and
chairs is flapping making a lot of noise,  but
it’s still holding tight hehehe.  This passed
week was great.  We had a visit from Judy’s
daughters and the grand kids Thursday and
I took the grand kids out in the field for a
little nature hike and of course Benny and
Rocky joined in.  We walked down to the
river and I took a few pictures of them as
well as many of us there and to 🙂  Yep,  it
was a beautiful sunny day.  The youngest
grandson Christian stayed  with us from
Thursday to Saturday.  We all stayed up
late watching Youtube gaming videos and
having a good laugh.  Judy took Christian
with her when she headed off for Craft
Night at her sister’s house and Christians
mom took him home from there when she
was done with her craft.  They made things
with mason jars or should I say most of
them did.  Some used what they had,  but
they had a good time.  Judy made three
decorative jars from mason jars.  They
came out pretty nice.  Judy got home late
last night and we had a late dinner and
then watched programs that I recorded
while she was gone.  My collarbone is
still hurting,  but the pain has eased a bit,
or I’m just getting used to the pain LOL.
In either case,  I’m alive,  just not doing
no jumping jacks or anything hehehe 😉
Judy’s going to Bangor with her sister
Dena Tuesday.  Dena has one doctors
appointment early Tuesday and another
early Wednesday and Dena didn’t want
to go alone and they won’t be coming
back till Wednesday.  So it’ll be me and
the boys again hanging together.  I’ll miss
Judy and I’m positive the boys will.  If
I know Benny and I do,  he’ll be barking
at everything that he thinks just might
be Judy coming home,  which will also
drive me batty,  but I’ll survive hehehe.
I’ll try to keep them entertained as much
as I am able.  If Tuesday is nice,  which
it’s supposed to be aside from being in
the upper 40’s I might take them out for
a little nature walk in the field.  Hehehe
that’s if my health will allow me.  So
what else is there?  Oh yea,  last Tuesday
Judy and I took the boys out for a little
field trip and we got a lot of pictures and
a few videos that came out pretty good.
Yes,  the snow has finally all melted and
allowed the Earth to display the ground
that was underneath all of that white
stuff LOL.  There’s a few trees attempting
to start budding,  but with our bouncing
back and forth warm to freezing weather
it’s still a hit and miss hehehe.  Tonight’s
low is supposed to be 25 F and that is
the night forecast for most of this week,
with some forecasted at 21 F hehehe.
But yet,  this is spring or at least a good
try hehehe.  Maybe in May it will begin
to be more springish,  but then it’ll be
too warm for me and I’ll have to turn on
our portable air conditioner LOL.  That
seems to be a pattern for me hehehehe.
Rocky came and sat down right beside
me just now and I felt his eyes looking
up at me.  I looked down and he was
cocking his head sideways looking at me
with his little doggy smile.  I petted him
and now he’s laid down.  LOL it’s hard
to write when you’re being stared at 🙂
LOL I thought I would see how he likes
it and so I just stared at him while he’s
lying there in his bed.  LOL I guess he
couldn’t sense that I was staring at him.
He just slept on.  OH well,  enough of
that and back to my journal.  Oh yea,
the Houlton Farms Dairy opened up a
few weeks ago,  so when Judy and I
have some money,  we’re going to get
us some ice cream yummy yum hehehe.
It’s where we make a special trip to
every year to get our favorites in the
ice cream world LOL.  My favorite is
the Vanilla Shake A Sundae with hot
fudge and one of  Judy’s favorites is
the Banana Awful Awful.   Hehehe
it sounds awful,  but it’s awful good
she says LOL.  Yes,  life up here in
this wintery world of Maine is place
of beauty.  There is much to see and
tons for me to take pictures of and also
write about.  I do get tired of being so
far away from family and friends and
I wish I had some friends up here that
I could spend time with,  but it’s not
all bad.  Maybe one day I’ll make a
friend that will also play guitar and
we can jam together.  That would be
great,  but until that day happens,  I’ll
keep on keeping on as I have.  God
has blessed me with a most wonderful
family up here and many friends that
might be far away,  but I can still talk
to them.  I am so thankful for being
able to share my thoughts with you
and hopefully brighten up your day.
God gave me this ability to write not
to keep to myself,  but to try and help
others to find Him and see the joy in
life that they had never been aware
of.  So,  I thank You God for all that
You have done for me and given me.
I guess it’s time now for me to begin
my little quest back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem
So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have stumbled upon a decent title just
a few lines back and now the chore
of trying to write something that makes
any sense using it hehehe.  Here goes.

Share My Thoughts

A single thought
I thought to say
might be a thought
the best today.
I share my thoughts
as time moves on
before my thoughts
are there and gone.
For ones thinking
thoughts acquired
might be goodness
times transpired.
Yet if no thought
finds its place
it might then weave
a frowning face.
So as my thinking
finds its cost
I find the good
and share my thoughts.

LOL so there ya go.  I thought I would share
my thoughts in a poem about sharing my, well
you know,  thoughts,  hehehe.  I hope it makes
sense to you 🙂  I won’t give my interpretation
of it.  You find your own 🙂  What it means to
me,  might not be the same as what it means to
you.  Sort of like a church sermon.  Thousands
can hear it,  but each person hears it differently
and gets their own message.  The message that
was meant for them.  Anyways,  I wonder if I
forgot to tell you anything other than the usual?
Oh yea,  my dad passed away April 22 2001
and that day is still burned into my brain,  but
I always know that he is with me everywhere
I go and still watching me as I write my poems
and journals.  He used to come in my room
and rest his hand on my shoulder as he waited
for me to finish.  He always called my journals
my sermons and he would take them to church
with him to use to teach his class.  Anyways,
I love ya dad and I know I’ll be with you when
my time in this old worn out body is done 🙂
Death is not the end,  but the beginning of life
in an everlasting realm.  Heaven awaits me 🙂
LOL I’m sure dad’s saying,  you ain’t done
doing what God has for ya to do yet,  so you
gotta few more years son.  Yep,  so until I’m
done here,  you’re stuck with me Judy LOL.
I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂  My life
is a blessing as I unwrap a new mystery as
each day comes to pass.  OK,  so I guess
I need to put on the brakes here before I get
totally back in Rambles Ville hehehe.   Now
I believe it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku,
but actually I wrote all of these poems last
week LOL.  They’re the extras that I didn’t
put in last weeks journal.  Though I did
write 22 haiku yesterday 🙂  Actually I sort
of went overboard and wrote four extras so
ya got 26 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  So,  with that said and done I
reckon it’s time for me to begin searching
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most joyful weekend,
or whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now, where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this week?  Hmm,  I spy
with my 1 good eye a bit of movement from
behind my orange juice glass.  Aha I think
I see you.  If you would get some skin lotion
and quit scratching I might not of seen ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+4 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Within A Way

Through times of trouble
day after day
sometimes might double
within a way.
Mirrors reflecting
what all we’ve done
seeming dissecting
bullets and gun.
Through scenes of beauty
a painters quest
the Earth is our duty
to save and be blessed.
For then within a way
so many will lie
while they display
how so many die.
The Earth needs our voices
to try hard to save
and not let our choices
to put it in the grave.
So we should pull together
and do what that’s right
within a way forever
to save day and night.
Not allowing greediness
to destroy every day
and then leaving shadows
of life within a way.
Take heed with God now
and gather your strength
to helps ones to learn how
to not become extinct.

The Life Of Dreams

Ventured are heartbeats
so timeless to sway
as dreams encounter
a wonderful way.
The life of a dream is
something to see
sometimes a space voyage
on through history.
The advantage of dreamland
is it can be sewn
into a wonderful
place you have known.
A place you have been to
so Heavenly fine
found in a dream world
that wonderful time.
My wife and I surely
can see the extremes
the best times of passed days
in the life of dreams.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Enraged

With only a second
ones can explode
being enraged
with all that’s bestowed.
Minutes can gather
a dynamite trail
being enraged
with every detail.
Then as your anger
takes firm control
moments are counted
taking their toll.
For as a second
turns into hours
being enraged
makes many so sour.
Not seeing truly
the time that is there
many enraged
will say they don’t care.
But for a moment
if some would just listen
then those enraged
would see what they’re missin.
Life in a bubble
with just others view
makes ones enraged
while not seeing true.
Truth of the matter
is many never see,
because they’re depending on
false publicity.

Found Inside

A book of a lifelong
counted through years
might have some pages
filled with some tears.
Found inside lifelong
now might seem great,
but as the years mount
some just can’t wait.
Determining statures
becomes such a fright
when found inside of them
there is no light.
The book of a lifelong
might become tainted
if the persons actions
are falsely painted.
The looks of the outside
often do not compare
to what that the inside
shows au contraire.
So if someone’s actions
don’t seem truth applied
look a bit closer to
what’s found inside.

Rebooted Scenes

As spring comes with wonders
and life shows its face
rebooted scenes then
come and replace.
The snow that was once there
with winter’s delight,
rebooted scenes bring
change day and night.
Scenes found exploding
with colorful stance
rebooted scenes with
their own song and dance.
Seeming as paintings then
time becomes grand
with rebooted scenes
all over the land.
Then some photographers
will come and explore
those rebooted scenes
they totally adore.
One by one photographs
taken in stride
those rebooted scenes
throughout the countryside.
Each scene so magically
brings forth a sight
as rebooted scenes
are found day and night.

A Shadowy Footprint

A shadow’s own footprint
is that of what’s there
as something or someone
is then found somewhere.
An echo or memory
are a shadow’s details,
often as a turnstile
where darkness prevails.
A shadowy footprint
is not without cause
for it needs reason
to show its applause.
So if you are seeing
a shadowy scene
search then to find out
what’s making it seen.
A shadowy footprint
with nothing to boast,
might be none other
than maybe a ghost.

Distorted

Signs of times
distorted views
find the minds
of ill gotten news.
Distorted words
so many say
when they’re amidst
an ill-gotten way.
Themes of means
are often found
with ones moments
up and down.
Times distorted
thereunto
a liars mind
will talk to you.
Learn to discern
truth and fiction
through some times
of contradiction.
For what are
so many distorted
about the lies
that ones reported.
Yet don’t forget
we are mankind
distorted yes
from time to time.
Look for mistook
of timeless ways
seeming distorted
but brighter days.
Often it’s us
with what we choose
distorted facts
to win or lose.
So now my friends
do not fall prey
to distorted words
that many say.

Underneath The Sky

Hearts are connecting,
time becomes waves,
lifetimes are forming
with wonderful ways.
Underneath the sky
holds chances to see
new days from Lord God
given for free.
Change of perception
rises from dust
underneath the sky
with life so robust.
Hearts are found beating
finding what’s true
while time keeps ticking
underneath skies of blue.
Windows of mercy
come from God on high
while showering blessings
underneath the sky.

Memories Winding Road

A footstep with years time
becomes time forgotten
memories of the good times
and those that were rotten.
A path laid in times quest
turns into mystery
of memories winding road
that comes from history.
A sequential road made
from what we’ve been through
records all our memories
from here thereunto.
Time turns to pebbles
as sand in a  glass
made into a time piece
to show time to pass.
Life is then a journey
sometimes a heavy load
down the moments pathway
memories winding road.

Prism Dreams

In a lights refraction
I see such details
as a sea worthy vessel
with tall mast and sails.
This is now but only
a dream of pure time,
found within a prism
that I find divine.
A prism dream moment
that my eyes surely see,
inside my inner sight
of times history.
A prism sort refraction
that seems crystallized,
found as my passed days
that I had memorized.
The facts of the moments
are as Heaven gleams,
the times I remember
in my prism dreams.

Haiku
for Apr 23,  2016

Time’s but a second
added onto some others
creating each day.

The life of silence
only hears what can be seen
as mimes in a park.

Some doors of springtime
display words within flowers
that pictures portray.

Many view a day
as but only a moment,
while others see life.

The essence of love
finds its way within heartbeats
God puts together.

A rose is a rose
even with different blooms
and same goes for us.

Truth is a path
that many will let to sway
when they are questioned.

Within a doorway
you might see a few choices
that tempt you so wrong.

When walking alone
you might feel someone’s presence,
an angel unseen.

Without God’s mercy
we could never see Heaven,
for we have all sinned.

Pages of a book
often do not coincide
with the front cover.

Mistreating others
will surely bounce back on us,
so take heed your stride.

With a breath of air
comes a new day to be seen
with past remembered.

A turtles venture
might be slow in the making,
but he will get there.

Birds of a flight
find their pathways connected
bound by their nature.

When churning butter
it at first will seem easy,
but then it will not.

Beyond horizons
holds mysteries yet to find
in your imagination.

A moment of thought
can either destroy today
or make it better.

Fields full of daisies
look like tiny sunflowers
that beckon our sight.

After a rainstorm
you might see a bright rainbow,
but no pot of gold.

Glistening springtime
gives forth many fragrant sights
as flowers will bloom.

Yesterdays threshold
might not be good for today,
for you may have changed.

Within a dark room
there holds many mysteries
that often strike fear.

Sometimes our own minds
will cause our own destruction,
before time’s begun.

Last is a good place
when first is in the fire
and needs a rescue.

Many weaknesses
are actually our strengths
in another light.
